From our friends over at Immersive Ltd. comes this building-sized projectionmapping done at the Friends House, home of Quakers in Britain.
Ben tells me they used 3 x Christie Roadie 35K to do the gig. Parts of the content were created by the in-house creative at Immersive’s Studio using 3D Studio Max, After Effects, Cinema 4D, Maya. Immersive also worked with students to produce some of the content using a variety of packages. Students were from Ravensbourne College, University of West London, Middlesex University and Teeside University.
The final piece was edited together in Final Cut Pro. The resolution of the project was 3600 x 1080.
The mapping and playback was from 2 x T4 Ai media servers a primary playback machine and a hot spare running through a Switcher.
Biofuel power lights and sound equipment by Firefly Solar (http://www.fireflysolar.net/). Sound design by Zen Death Squad (http://zendeathsquad.com/), music by Jazon Mraz (http://jasonmraz.com/) and the project was curated and directed by Immersive Ltd (http://www.immersive.eu/). Immersive donated the project to Greenpeace UK.

Tightly integrated support for 3D displays, LEDs, moving lights and other visual elements allow designers to merge video and lighting with unprecedented control.
They’re also releasing the Sapphire Media console, the AI-SM, in August, as well as a dedicated server console- the MSC-1. Exciting stuff from Avo and I can’t wait to get some more info. Be sure to check back for an update!
